My MIL made ham, beans & cranberry relish, my FIL made chestnut stuffing (I politely had a spoonful 🤢), I made a decadent mac & cheese with cream cheese/butter cheese/extra sharp cheddar/butter and panko bread crumbs. My mac & cheese was creamy and flavorful. My wife made a delicious pumpkin spice cake with vanilla fluff icing.
Definitely an odd meal…My bro requested I make decadent appetizers so I made Spicy Dijon/Mayo and Smoked Paprika Eggs with Sweet Labanon Bologna Rollups filled with chopped sun-dried tomatoes and onion and chive cream cheese. He also requested two bottles of wine. For dinner we had lame Latin fusion food delivered from this joint called Rice and Beans. A step above taco bell but nothing to praise that’s for sure, followed by a moist yellow cake made with Greek yogurt instead of butter and butterscotch fluff icing with sprinkles made by my wife.
It was a good evening ending on watching one of my childhood favorite vampire flicks. My brother-in-law thought the film was hilarious, normally I have issues when people make fun of flicks but hey the four of us had a great evening that’s all that counts. This was the first time in quite a few decades that we celebrated my brother’s birthday.
MERRIEST OF CHRISTMAS ‘ S TO ALL MY FELLOW BLOGGERS/FRIEND’S AND FOLLOWER’S
I made potatoes with pickled onions, cheddar apple green onion biscuits, my father in law made chestnut stuffing, my mother in law made ham, green beans, cranberry relish and pudding pie. My wife made pumpkin fluff pie and apple cake, my brother in law brought coffee and cookies. Never had ham for Thanksgiving. There is a first for everything. I love my family. Beautiful dinner.
